The aim of this investigation was to determine the prevalence of coccidian infections in suckling piglets and sows in Poland. The research was carried out in 14 out of 16 Polish provinces in the years 2003-2005. The investigation was conducted on three types of farms: large farms (>100 sows), medium farms (25-100 sows) and small farms (<25 sows). Diarrhoea(More)
The modification of flotation method for the examination of diarrhoeic piglet faeces for the detection of Isospora suis oocysts was elaborated. The method was based on removing fractions of fat from the sample of faeces by centrifugation with a 25% Percoll solution. The investigations were carried out in comparison to the McMaster method. From five variants(More)
Applicability and sensitivity of the commercial tests MAT (modified agglutination test), LAT (latex agglutination test), in comparison to in-house serologic assay (ELISA), and reference test (indirect fluorescence antibody test, IFAT) to detect specific antibodies against Toxoplasma gondii in pigs were investigated. One hundred and six blood samples were(More)
Trichomonacidal activity in vitro of 2 newly synthesized derivatives of benzoizothiazolinon (BIT) in comparison with metronidazole was determined by calculating lethal concentration for 50% trichomonal population (C50). Experiments were carried out on 2 strains of T. vaginalis and 2 strains of T. anseris. Both preparations showed considerably higher(More)
The prevalence of hypodermosis was examined in 285 cows from 10 herds from different regions of Poland. The prevalence of invasion ranged from 10 to 86% in particular herds. The highest number of infected animals occurred in herds from eastern and north-eastern Poland and the lowest one in herds from southern and central regions of the country. Hypoderma(More)
The aim of these investigations was to prepare the antigen and control sera for the ELISA. Positive control sera were obtained from 163 cows showing clinical symptoms of H. bovis infection and negative control sera from 60 cows free from the infection. The antigen for the ELISA was obtained from H. bovis L1 larvae. Three basic fraction were isolated from(More)
Strongyloidosis was induced by percutaneous injection of rabbits; then organ changes were tested. It has been found that Strongyloides papillosus evoked changes in intestine, liver, kidney and lung. No notable changes were found in heart, spleen and suprarenal gland. These changes may be provoked not only directly by the presence of these parasites but also(More)
